CHARLOTTE – You can’t beat ol’ Joyce Kilmer when you’re getting ready for spring. One way to bring beauty to your spring landscaping efforts that’s easy – plant a tree.
It doesn’t take much effort and it’s probably one of the best projects you can undertake for your Spring landscaping. Once the tree is established it’s about as low maintenance as your landscape can get. Plus, the unique beauty it can bring to your yard will last decades.
The key is to choose a tree that adds interest to your landscape in the form of color, shape, size and texture. There are many trees to choose from but just make sure the type of tree you choose is the right choice for your specific area. It’s advisable to consult with a nursery or arborist before making your final decision. One suggestion to consider is a Japanese Maple. The Japanese Maple can thrive in most any climate. They offer color, form and texture to most any landscape. The dwarf versions are especially popular for backyard sitting areas and some change beautiful colors in the Fall.
